MrBunn (2459) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2005
Pours very murky and light with tons of carbonation. Head is light. Aroma is very yeasty. Apple and yeast dominate taste. A little disappointed on this one.

tobi98ab (32) - Taste of Beer, Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 7, 2005
[bottled] Unclear appearance with a thick head. Hoppy aroma with hints of fruit. Palate is sharp and the alcohol is obvious. Flavor shows hints of cinnemon and citrus/lime. After a while palate is more soft and round.

33cl bottle. Beautiful hoppy aroma. A strong tasting but sweet Abbey Tripel with a distinct bitterness. Subtle hints of banana and spice with a smooth but bitter finish. Recommended.

Davolina (19) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2005
Golden colour, aroma of malt, yeast and hops.. nice citric fruitness, hides the alcohol very well, but you definetly feel it! Quite a dangerous fresh summer beer, that will get you really pissed if you forget how strong it is, cos i could easily drink ten! hehe..

stouby (3737) - Holbæk, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2005
Bottle, at GB. Yellow with large white head, mostly lasting, good lacings. Aroma of malt and yeast (coriander). Flavor of sweet malt, yeast and hops. Medium body, oily, soft carbonated. The alcohol is felt.

lachesis (756) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - MAR 5, 2005
Golden blond beer With almost white creamy head. Aroma’s of malt, fruit-candies, smell of erzats sugar and grassy herbal hints in the nose. Round taste with smooth edges and hints of cakes, sugary hints of peache sirup out of tins, some spices and grassy hops.

Hendo (110) - Sint Anthonis, NETHERLANDS - FEB 27, 2005
Leffe Blond is far better than this, not a very good example of the Tripel style.

highlandlad (1416) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - FEB 21, 2005
Clumsy, unbalanced Belgian tripel. Poured a bottle-fermented cloudy marmalade colour with a fine head. Huge nose with lots of piney hops, banana notes and lashings of alcohol. Firm-bodied and strongly alcoholic. Lemon-fruit notes and spices (coriander?) initially, followed by a fierce sherry-like finish. Lacks the balance of the Radieuse or Vieille Cuvee. I found the spices cloying and the alcohol too intrusive. Not Leffe’s best work. (Bottle)

Stew41 (1736) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - FEB 8, 2005
This beer didn’t really get going for me. Looks great in the glass; very cloudy orange. Strong nose, some banana and clove, some alcohol lift. Palate felt very disjointed; some nice sweet malts and spice early but the flavour profile fell off a cliff with seering heat and a blocky, bitter, spirity, extracted finish. Quite disappointing.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 2, 2005
Light yellow color, very cloudy appearance. Nice white head. Fruity, yeasty and banana aroma. Flavor has also some fresh banana, yeast and mild alcohol coming up nicely. Dries mildly in the end, dryness lasts. Medium bodied.
